Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 Review

With the Kindle Fire HD 8.9 comes the most well-rounded Amazon content delivery system you've ever held in two hands - but that's all it is. This device is being sold as exactly the device it was meant to be: the Amazon Vending Machine HD 8.9, and it takes its job seriously.
